The №1 seeded Novak Djokovic against Daniil Medvedev and Richard Gasquet against Gael Monfils are the semifinals in the Aegon International tennis tournament in Eastbourne.
Djokovic reached the semifinals after a dominating display and two wins by two sets since the start of the tournament. In his first match he met Vasek Pospisil from Canada and beat him with 6-3 6-4.
During the 1/4-finals the Serbian star had to face Donald Young from the USA. Once again he didn’t lose a set, qualifying for the semifinals after a 6-4 7-5 win.
